be certain that luke will kill me for this post one day...
yesterday luke came running into the living room telling me he was hurt. i was not surprised since all he and his brother do is fight these days (and seth is a pure punk.) however, this was a hurt my little luke hasn't experienced before and i completely felt terrible for him. he was "holding himself" and told me his teeter hurt. and i asked him what happened and he said "i don't know!" so i finally got out of him that sethy had hit him. so i had a brief discussion with seth about not hitting, especially there, and sent him to time out and then he had to hug luke. so i called micah and said "we have had our first teeter hurting incident so you need to be prepared to give a little boy talk tonight." and after telling micah what happened, he seemed hesitant, like he wasn't sure what he would say. but i reminded him that i didn't have one of those so i didn't know why they hurt. however, i would be happy to have the conversation in more detail if he wanted to volunteer to talk to Ally Claire when she starts her period.
I'm not sure what Micah said, but i know the talk was had and all is well.
Boys....i did want to take a minute to brag on luke. he gets treats at the end of the day if he has been good at school. there has only been 2-3 times in the last 2 years that he hasn't gotten one (and that's saying a lot for my kid!) he does really well. however, the last few weeks, i have noticed that he would bring home a tootsie roll for himself and then something that i knew he didn't like. the first week he brought home a butterfly tatoo and said it was for me. the next week he brought home an airhead candy. i asked him who it was for and he said "it's for sethy." and every week, he gets himself something and picks out something he thinks seth will like too. brothers can be sweet sometimes.
